The pickets did come down before I was even awake. The strike, however, did not end. The pickets came down for bargaining talks, but that accomplished nothing. The talks went no where.
You’d think that would mean this strike is likely to last a long time, however, tonight, I received some info that does not bode well for the TAs. I’m not sure if it’s entirely true, so I won’t mention it.
The buses were running as normal as of 9:30am which meant I got my haircut without any problems. I did, however, make an unscheduled stop to the Student Health Service today. It all started last night when my ankles got really itchy before I went to bed. I scratched them to much relief, but then I broke out in hives. I think I ate something that my body didn’t like.
Anyways, when I woke up, everything was fine. Then on the way back from my haircut, knees got itchy. It took all my willpower not to take my pants off on the bus and just start scratching.
As soon as I got home, I scratched like there was no tomorrow. I swear, I have not derived so much physical pleasure from scratching an itch. Of course, the hives popped up all over my knees, at which point I decided I needed to go to the doctor.
When I got to the clinic, this super-hot blonde was ahead of me in line, and by the time it was my turn to see one of the doctors, my hives had gone away.
She said I had a really mild form of whatever it was and gave me an anti-histamine. One a day she said.
I had a long day. I’m going to bed now… well, not really… lol.
